EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (KSDK) - An Alton pair pleaded guilty Monday to their involvement in selling the heroin that caused the death of a local man in August 2012, US Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois Stephen Wigginton said.
According to court documents, 33-year-old Tyrone Adams and 26-year-old Cara Moss admitted to selling heroin to Leonard Hormann for $100 on August 20, 2012, from their residence on Powhattan Street in Alton.
Hormann, 23, was found dead of an overdose by his family in his own residence on August 21, 2012.
Adams and Moss pleaded guilty to distribution of heroin resulting in death, as well as maintaining drug-involved premises at their residence between June 2012 and September 2012. Adams also pleaded guilty to distribution of heroin within 1,000-feet of a school.
Tyrone Adams and Cara Moss each face life imprisonment when they're sentenced on April 29, 2013. They've been held without bail since their arrest on September 5, 2012.
